Minimalist running shoes have become one of the most popular styles for both their performance benefits and their casual comforts. Merrell, who is well known for their all-terrain trail designs, has decided to take the minimalist style in a new direction with the help of Vibram.

Essentially, the Merrell True Glove is a minimalist trail shoe. It features a lightweight durable Vibram outsole with a semi-aggressive tread pattern. Thanks to Merrell’s Omni-fit lacing system, its able to live up to its name with a glove-like fit. AnĀ Aegis antimicrobial solution has been applied to the insole to help resist odor and the lightweight efforts continue with a CMEVA midsole for cushioning. When its all said and done, the Merrell True Glove provides a precision fit and comfort, and weighs just a touch over 7 ounces, making it a great reason for you to get out there and reconnect with Mother Nature this summer.
